Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Law - Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: Reindeer herding provides an important source of livelihood in many parts of the Arctic. In Northern Europe, reindeer herders are still battling the consequences of nuclear fallout suffered in the wake of the 1986 Chernobyl incident. In 2014 in parts of Norway a rapid increase in radioactivity was reported in reindeer meat as a result of the consumption of specific mushrooms which store large amounts of cesium-137. In this article the question will be asked if reindeer herders can have a claim for compensation under the European Convention on Human Rights.
